Are you missing Chris Hemsworth? While we wait for Thor: Love and Thunder to arrive at some point (November 2021 to be exact, but who knows what will wind up delayed now), Netflix gives us a reason to look at one of our favorite Chrises, er, something to tide us over until Thor’s grand return. Extraction goes darker and grittier for a thrilling action romp that will have you on the edge of your seat, and it’s without a doubt one of April’s best new release titles.

Chris Hemsworth stars in Extraction as Tyler Rake, a black market mercenary whose skills and fearlessness are called on at the perfect time. With nothing left to lose, Rake accepts the task of rescuing the kidnapped son of a crime lord who has been imprisoned. However, as Rake wades deeper into the murky waters of weapons dealers and drug traffickers, this deadly mission doubles in its intensity and could potentially transform the lives of Rake and the child.

Extraction comes from director Sam Hargrave, who makes his directorial debut with the film but has appeared in Atomic Blonde and worked as a stunt coordinator for Captain America: Civil War. The film was produced by Hemsworth, Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, the latter of which also wrote the film, reteaming for the first time since wrapping Avengers. Give the action thriller a shot when it makes its big premiere on Netflix on the final Friday of April.
